Cost Efficient Storage, Connected Systems, Strong Audit Trail Guarantee

Storage management with specialist VAT providers ensures you have best tax compliance practice and processes in place. Using our storage and archiving services has a huge advantage as it immediately provides an audit trail back to your expense and spend systems. This ensures you have transparency and full visibility of all your transactions in storage, and on your systems.  Furthermore, Taxback International storage systems automatically connect to our wider VAT reclaim services making it an efficient and comprehensive cost saving offering.

Common Challenges

Non-VAT storage providers tend to offer a more basic index of field parameters for storage and e-archiving.  As a result, the audit report created is generally not aligned with how tax authorities request documents in event of a tax audit. It is also challenging as it makes traceability against a company’s own systems for errors and gaps difficult.

Basic Depth of data fields making traceability to systems difficult

  • Cost saving with fewer fields but lacks easy trace-ability.
  • Response rates to tax audit requests are slowed.

Separate Location from other VAT services adds complexity and costs

  • Costly for uplifting & re-instating boxes for VAT reclaim.
  • Fewer options for other related VAT services.

Poor knowledge of VAT regulations

  • Non VAT experts are rarely up to date.

Self Service tends to be a feature for clients 

  • Management of stock at end of archiving is a typical example.
